Canada’s energy industry is working to reduce carbon emissions and become more diverse and efficient. With this in mind, dmg events has announced a new energy career expo that will bring job seekers together with companies needing quality candidates to cope with the increasing demands of energy production and the shortage of workers.

The event will host over 50 exhibitors and 6,000 attendees across two days of exhibition with full programming, knowledge bars and workshops on September 19-20, 2023, at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

Participants can expect to meet human resources representatives from the top energy companies in Alberta and get insight from leaders in the sector about how to stand out in a saturated job market.

An elite steering committee from companies including Inter Pipeline, Kastel Staffing, KPMG and University of Calgary will help drive the priorities of diversity and inclusion, First Nations talent, women and people of colour in energy to address the skills gap in Alberta’s world-class energy sector. The exhibition and conference will help job seekers connect with companies hiring in oil and gas production, as well as exciting new opportunities in the energy transition such as hydrogen and CCUS (carbon capture, utilization and storage), to other areas of energy production.

According to StatsCan data for the last quarter, there are over 100,000 job vacancies in Alberta alone.

“Energy Works Career Expo will shine a spotlight on the critical role people are playing in the Canadian sector. By leveraging our experience of hosting world-class events around the globe, we will highlight companies that want to hire the best talent to address the skills gap,” says Nick Samain, senior vice president of dmg events, who also organizes the Global Energy Show in Calgary.
